Maston - Opal Collection (2014)
Consisting of tracks culled from earlier works and unreleased material, Frank Maston's Opal Collection lands squarely in the more fragile regions of psychedelic influence, putting croons and acoustic guitar to work in service of the man's warm analog soul. There's tambourines, female guest vocals, bells, whistles, and all the other accoutrements you might expect from poppy psych-folk, perfect for locating people interested in setting up a drum circle. The tracks are fairly short (even dipping to less than a minute in duration), but the sweet tones coaxed from the guitar and glitter from the synth make for a pleasant and light-hearted refresher if you need a break from the chill of winter.
